Complainant Name:
Ms Sarah James

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Sarah James, Press Officer at the Brighton Steiner School, complained that coverage in a number of newspapers had made the inaccurate claim that the school had banned Santa. In fact, the school had no policy on the matter, and did not have Santa at its Christmas bazaar as it tried to offer something different.

Resolution:

The newspaper emphasised that the article had not expressly claimed that the school had banned Santa. Nonetheless, it offered to annotate its records to the effect that the complainantís comments on Coca-Cola and Santa reflected her own personal views. The complainant accepted this measure as a resolution to her complaint.

Report: 76
